Oh OK, darn. What would you recommend me to look at if I want my C# project (Kinect) to communicate live with the Arduino?

Thanks, I am writing the program on my own.

When you say output to COM, do you mean that the WPF application can read/write directly to the COM that the Arduino is connected to? If so, could you point me in the direction of a tutorial for this?

Thanks.
3  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Arduino reading in live values on: January 26, 2013, 05:32:22 pm
I'm planning to use a Kinect to read in distance values and use Visual Studio 2012 to write a program that takes these values and signals the Arduino to actuate motors connected to it.

Currently, I can get the depth values and which side the closest obstacle is from the Kinect and output it onto a screen, however I am unclear as to how I can make the Arduino receive live streaming data. Should I output the Kinect data to a file and have the Arduino continuously read the file? How can I integrate the Arduino project and call its methods from within my Kinect project?

Also can anyone point me in the direction of how to make the Arduino continuously poll and read a file on a Windows 8 computer connected via USB?

I have a solution in Visual Studio 2012 that includes the Arduino sketch (using VisualMicro) and a WPF C# application. How can I refer to and call methods from the Arduino sketch project from my WPF C# project in Visual Studio? So far, they are under the same solution and the Arduino project is a dependency of the C# project. However, I cannot call the loop() function from my C# project and compiling my solution does not compile the Arduino project.

Thanks.
